    Here are some pics Rhino sent me last year when this project started.

    My Dad wants to look at these.

    Got to admire you guys that manipulate metal the way you do. For anything built by man there has to be an improvement on.

I had planed to move the mag back from the barrel. but I see in the pic;s that the trunion is opened up to allow for the longer shell. Are these pics of a modifed yugo or a saiga? I wish I had a saiga to look at. none of the shops I have been to have any in 308. I like the idea of welding the rear sight block to the trunion that will save a lot of work plus I plan to mill off all provisons for a rear sight as well plan on a scoped only. will possably mount the scope rail to were the old sight was. My barrel is about .680 at the aprox location of were the gas block will be also looks like the Remington arms Ilion NY USA logo can stay intact if I choose and be visable. I am sure this will baffel most law inforcemet and Game Warden types. A Remington 308 AK what the !@#$%^ . Next step is to find a Yugo kit with a bad barrel cheap. Thought about seeing what CFS was doing with some of there bad returned kits.

    They should have something unless thos are the ones that Century is selling with Romy barrels.

    I know I sent 6 back to them that were trashed.

    Wow, thank you for that link.

    Silly me I just assumed that since 7.62mm = .300 " we were talking apples and apples here

    Ahh well I am still very interested in the idea of a .308 AK.

    Sarcasm? Hell, no. I was thinking of the original question by 1biggun which was asking about a standard AK trunnion and bolt. Sorry if I wasn't clear.

I can handel all the mag fitting and bolt face work. looking to use a Romy kit for this with a modified mauser barrel. I am aware of the saiga rifles do the differ in the trunion and bolt?

    BIG ISSUE HERE - You guys are talking about certain guns being up to handling 7.62 NATO and 308 as the same thing. It's my understanding that 7.62 NATO uses 50ksi-ish chamber pressures and that 308 Winchester uses 62ksi-ish ones.

    I would be very concerned about making a gun designed for 7.62 NATO only to take US commercial 308 Winchester ammo.

    Am I wrong about this, and are the Galils and Yugos designed to take US commercial ammo and not just 7.62 NATO? For the Saiga-308 to be marketed as a sporting gun in the US I'm pretty sure it would be up to the task, hence the third bolt lug at the expense of making a new and very different kind of magazine. But are the Galils and Yugos the same way?

    Folks who talk of thousand round torture tests probably aren't using thousands of rounds of commercial 308.

    So is there something I'm missing here? If Yugo AKs are in fact up to 308 Winchester, then you bet I'll be doing a build!
